Ooooh I'm so excited I could crush a grape!
Why I hear you cry......well I'll tell you. It's because Cath is coming to Sheffield (not Cath herself- obviously) well Meadowhall to be precise but that's fine as it's only ten minutes away from where I live.
We did have a little taster last week when the tour bus rolled up for the day.
I jumped on the tram after work and managed to catch it just before it left.
The bus was packed with gorgeousness and it took every ounce of willpower I had (and the fact it was a week before pay day)
I was really really good and only made two teeny tiny purchases.
a patch for our picnic blanket £2
and this which will hang in the camper £1
this was a little freebie
I spent a good twenty minutes chin wagging with the lovely girls and they insisted I had my picture taken (they really did honest). So here it is the first and most definitely the last photo you are ever likely to see of me on here.
I'm convinced I don't take a good photo and always look a bit ropey but Iv'e recently come to the conclusion that I am actually a bit ropey and it's nothing to do with the photographer/dodgy camera more the subject matter!
Anyhows I digress, the lovely girls (I didn't even ask their names- how very rude of me) were very interested to hear about my previous job in the convent and my ramblings on here and ended up encouraging me to apply for a job at the new Meadowhall shop. Can you imagine me working at Cath Kidston, I would be handing my wages back over the counter quicker than you could say 'spotty messenger bag'!!!
While i'm on the subject of Cath, i picked up this little tin from the car boot at the weekend for 50p. I think it should have been part of a set but sadly the others were nowhere to be seen.
also spotted this Johnson Bros plate which will be making it's way to the next vintage fair. The photo makes it look washed out but it's actually a really lovely shade of green.
Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine .....although it seems to be in hiding here in Sheffield this morning.
